Police are seeking this man connected to a string of bank robberies in Issaquah, Bellevue and Newcastle.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man believed to have robbed banks in Issaquah, Newcastle and Bellevue.

The Seattle Safe Streets Task Force is calling him the “Rent Money Bandit” because each of the incidents occurred during the first few days of the month, according to a news release from the FBI.

The man is wanted for his alleged involvement in the following bank robberies: 10 a.m. Aug. 4 at Issaquah’s Gilman Boulevard Chase Bank; 2 p.m. Sept. 2 at Newcastle’s Chase Bank; and 2:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at Bellevue’s Overlake Chase Bank branch.

The subject is described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, about 6 feet tall and of thin build. In each robbery, he is wearing a dark baseball cap of various styles, dark sunglasses and black gloves.

In two robberies, he wore a raglan shirt with dark sleeves. For the Newcastle incident, his hat had a distinctive, triangular letter A. He implied he had a weapon in at least one robbery.

Anyone with information as to the identity or whereabouts of the suspected robber should call law enforcement immediately and refrain from approaching him.

Those with information should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) toll free. Callers to Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $1,000 if the information given leads to an arrest and charge of the person(s) involved.

The Seattle Safe Streets Task Force includes members from the FBI, Bellevue Police Department, Auburn Police Department, King County Sheriff’s Office and Seattle Police Department.
